ZURICH, SWITZERLAND: GDI 72. Internationale Handelstagung /// SEPTEMBER 8 – 9, 2022

Flow Commerce: How Shifting Boundaries Reshape Retail – this is the topic of this in-person event

The transformation continues. In the past few decades, digitization has continuously broken down borders and turned retail upside down. The global pandemic stalled globalized supply chains. The Ukraine war further exacerbated the situation. At the same time, customers are more demanding than ever before. For them, consumption has changed from an activity to a condition. They do not distinguish between the physical and virtual worlds of experience.

The 72nd international Retail Conference at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute will among others discuss:

  • How can reliability and trust be built when supply chains and raw materials are no longer guaranteed?
  • Who bears the additional costs in a low-margin industry?
  • How important does sustainability become when the availability of goods decreases?
  • How can business models establish themselves permanently in a hybrid world?

The event is the flagship Completely Retail Marketplace event in London. It is the country’s largest network of occupiers and landlords and offers an environment created for retail professionals and retail and leisure brands to share opportunities and exchange insight about the market.
